Jancis Robinson is one of the premier wine writers in the world. The esteemed author visited Christie’s Wine Department as part of a tour to promote two new books: WINE GRAPES, A Complete Guide to 1,368 Vine Varieties, including their Origins and Flavours, co-authored with Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz, and The World Atlas of Wine, 7th edition, co-authored with Hugh Johnson.

Jancis was hosted by Per Holmberg, Christie’s Head of Wine Sales for the Americas. During an afternoon tasting, Jancis and Per selected a small selection of wines to taste with a few New York based journalists.

Ms. Robinson answered questions about the new books, including noting that the Virginia received more space in the World Atlas of Wine than her home of England. Both are considered regions on the rise. RDV Vineyards, Lost Mountain, Virginia Red Wine, 2010 was one of the wines she selected for the afternoon.

Mr. Holmberg explained to the group that there are a range of wines available at Christie's – from the highest priced to more modest selections that collectors with less deep pockets can afford. He also told the group that Christie’s had taken over what is probably the world’s most famous wine auction, the Hospice de Beaune, in 2005.

Both of the books, including the well-received IPad version of the World Atlas of Wine, are available at numerous outlets, including Amazon.
